Group email registration

Hi, I would like to ask if it is possible to register google analytics for group email/alias. Since I cannot log into this account (it is alias), I cannot verify it as valid email adress. Can you understand my problem?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Adam

Hi Adam,

So as I understand it you want to be able to login to Google Analytics using a distribution list email address?

This should be possible but only if the distribution list or alias hasn't been made under Google Apps for Business. Do you use Google Apps for your emails?

You understand perfectly.
Yes, we are using Google Apps. So there is no other way around?

Hi Adam,

Sadly aliases aren't individual Google Accounts themselves so the only way to have a single login would be to create a new users with the name you want, give that account access and set up some kind of mail forwarding.

Every user in a Google Apps user list has a Google Account which is usually the default address for that user, so when you try create an account even with an alias it recognises that you already have an account.
